"Hello! I have a decade of professional experience as an educator, with over 5 years experience as a private tutor and editor on Wyzant's platform and with Sentia Education. Over the years I have worked with dozens of students across the US and abroad. I have also worked as a 10th grade English teacher, curriculum developer, writing mentor, social worker, researcher, camp director, and many other education and social research positions.

As I hope you see in my Student Feedback section - I'm very flexible, love teaching, and aim to put the student first.

MY SERVICES

I love helping high school students as they begin the first step on their college journey. Starting with a 2-3 hour phone call, I review a student's interests, goals, and academic and family background in order to help them construct the perfect personal statement. In this respect, I think of myself as a professional storyteller. I then help students as they refine the structure of their narrative and then polish each and every word.

I also specialize in helping edit high school and college level social science and humanities essays. Depending on your needs and budget, I can help with studying challenging material, brainstorming for an essay, strengthening your arguments, or proofreading.

MY OWN ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE

I recently earned a Masters in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University and also work as an adolescent psychotherapist. Previously, I earned my MSc in Sociology of Education at Oxford, and have also completed one year of PhD coursework in Philosophy of ethics and epistemology at Yale. Additionally, I am a Fulbright Grantee (Indonesia) and HiA Human Rights Fellow (Germany).

MY HOBBIES

I enjoy reading any and everything. I also love traveling and have spent over two years living abroad. Most of my time was spent in England and Indonesia, but I've also spent months each in Uganda, Bosnia, Kenya, Germany, and India. I'm a member of the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, Standing Up for Racial Justice, and Extinction Rebe" less...
